Ingredient callouts

  • A good concentration of Niacinamide (4.00% - 4.90%). Niacinamide is a well-studied multi-tasking active. It is stable, and can work well in almost any hydrating formulation. There is solid evidence that Niacinamide can help support skin barrier, regulate oil production and reduce acne and clogged pores. It also helps to fight photodamage and improve the skin tone, reducing pigmentation marks.
  • This product contains acids (gluconolactone 0.80% - 1.20%). Their concentration is low, and they will not have a strong exfoliating effect. Instead, they work to support the skin natural acid mantle and to attract water (as humectants). PHAs (gluconolactone) especially are great for improving skin hydration. They might be even able to stimulate the production of skin's natural humectants and support the healthy skin microbiome.
  • Humectants (histidine 0.20% - 0.35%, arginine 0.20% - 0.40%, alanine 0.20% - 0.40%, aspartic acid 0.25% - 0.40%, glutamic acid 0.25% - 0.45%, glycine 0.20% - 0.40%, glycerin 0.25% - 0.50%, fructooligosaccharides 0.20% - 0.40% and glycerin 0.30% - 0.55%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
